Managers’ Corner: New trainings on GROW and the promotion and equity process

If you’re a people manager, take note: Three upcoming training sessions are designed to help you more easily complete required tasks while better supporting employees.

GROWing your Check-In Conversations for Managers
Feb. 6, 10 a.m. – 12 p.m.
GROW is a popular coaching framework used around the world for problem-solving, goal-setting and performance improvement. This interactive session allows managers to discuss and practice using the GROW framework as a strategy and tool to support engaging STEP Check-in conversations. Participants must take the ecourse “GROWing your Checkpoint Conversations” before this class.

GROW Plus: Accountability Conversations for Managers
Feb. 22, 1 – 3:30 p.m. | Feb. 27, 1 – 3:30 p.m. | Feb. 29, 9:30 a.m. – 12 p.m.
This is the second part of the required live training series on manager and employee performance conversations. This training answers the question: “What do I do when my coaching is not improving performance?” In this virtual, live, and highly interactive workshop, we will cover: providing productive critical feedback, managing emotions, creating efficient documentation and holding effective accountability conversations. Managers will also practice role-playing accountability conversations using the UCOP GROW Plus framework.

People Leader Forum – Promotion and Equity Process
Feb. 23, 1 – 2 p.m.
People Leaders Forums are monthly opportunities for supervisors to connect, develop leadership skills, build community, share best practices, swap strategies for navigating current challenges and learn to better support themselves and their teams. In this session, UCOP Compensation Manager JJ Lerma will explain the promotion and compensation equity review processes.
